    A German Soldier's Funeral


    A lone guard stands at attention next to a coffin draped with the swastika. Belarus, 1941.



    The occupation of Belarus by Nazi Germany occurred as part of the German invasion of the Soviet Union on June 22, 1941 (Operation Barbarossa) and ended in August 1944 with the Soviets re-gained control.
